Friend, Come Higher

Peter, from Franco Zeffirelli's Jesus of Nazareth
“You are Simon son of John. You will be called Cephas” (which, when translated, is Peter, the rock). John 1:42

Yes, I do know you.
I see you
and know you better than you know yourself.

I know you are friable.
I know you can crumble,
though these things may surprise you.

But your strength shall emerge from the weakness
you shall thoroughly conquer,
and thoroughly renounce.

I am calling you
from being Peter, the impulsive,
to becoming Peter who unshakeably loves me,
who is built rocklike on the bedrock of me.

I am calling you from being a fisherman
to being a fisher of men.

Following my will
will always lead you upward and onward
to a higher place.

Friend, come higher.
Come follow me.
